I'm reading I'll Have What She's Having, a food memoir by Rebecca Harrington. In it, she tries the diets of various celebrities: Gwyneth Paltrow, Liz Taylor, Karl Lagerfeld, and Marilyn Monroe (so far). Karl's diet is the most spartan, Gwyneth's the most modern (raw almonds soaked in milk, kale juice), Liz's the most disgusting (sour cream and cottage cheese mixed as a dip for fruit). For breakfast, Marilyn liked two raw eggs whipped in milk; the author reports that this is delicious, "like bland eggnog." Marilyn would skip lunch and have steak with five carrots for dinner.
